Service sucked. The waiters, waitresses, and cooks were all congregated in the corner talking and carrying on. Meanwhile, my drink was empty for way too long. After all, this is spicy food. Much better service in Arkansas. Maybe it should be Copland's of Arkansas.

First time. Food was amazing. Service was incredible. One thing I wasn't a fan of was the music being so loud. I know you can't please everyone but very hard to hear folks at other end of table when you have a large party.

I believe we ate at the one in Alexandria, LA. The food was good for brunch. They did not replenish one or two of the warmers, but had plenty enough to choose from. We arrived around 1 and started with a Bloody Mary and mimosa. They were done well. The roast was cool and not warm when I returned to... More

Want some true Louisiana style cooking with some Cajun blends, then this is the place! Great food every time I've visit, especially the crawfish bread. Plenty to choose from, good prices on drinks especially during happy hour. I'll be back!

From Mobile, AL...we used to have a Copelands and it was always pretty good. So when we were in Kenner for a preflight night we chose this one that was fairly close to our hotel. 5:30 pm on a Friday and the restaurant was pretty packed but we were seated immediately. Waiter was very nice and good at his job.... More

Try the eggplant pirogue. Their signature dish. I'm a meat and potatoes guy and I loved it. Friendly staff.

I entertained a client for dinner November 9th. The service was forgetful and inattentive. There were only 3 of us and we had to flag down other waiters because our waitress did not return, was not around after taking our order. Then my $30 steak was overdone and not very hot anymore. I think it sat too long after cooking.... More

I ate here for Sunday Brunch. The waitress, Victoria, was very friendly and helpful and efficient. I had an omelette w shrimp and cheese grits which was excellent. The $2 mimosas were not bad either. My food was so good that I returned for the late evening happy hour specials. My husband & I had several appetizers and were pleased... More

The food was awful, cold and my spouses dish came out without any shrimp. The server andrily came back with 6 small shrimp in a plastic cup after he had finished his meal. Our Copelands in Nashville closed and I can see why.

Classic NO food and some variations on classics. All Louisiana based gourmet. It's been an institution here since i was a kid and they're still going strong. Try the red hot potato's as a side. The crab claw app is simply amazing.
